Weather affects everyone and at times these effects are severe and dangerous. The National Weather Service has weather radar stations across the nation. Yet, they still trust people on the ground to report conditions as they occur. These field reports help the National Weather Service distribute accurate severe weather warnings. You can help yourself and others by taking the Skywarn Spotter Training. The National Weather Service office at North Webster holds classes each year. You can check the National Weather Service North Webster Office website for class availability and online training.
